Rodney King

By  | 

Rodney King is back in court in California.

King has pleaded innocent to misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and driving under the influence of PCP.

The charges are related to a car crash in April. Police say King raced through a Rialto intersection at more than 100 miles an hour before losing control, striking a utility pole, careening into a fence and hitting a house.

King was the motorist whose videotaped beating by Los Angeles police officers eventually led to four days of riots. King has had several run-ins with the law since then.
